This town also boasts some of the best flats fishing along the Yucatan Peninsula’s coastline. Head south towards Punta Allen, and you’ll be greeted by the plentiful Ascension Bay. This waterway is brimming with inshore game fish, including Snook, Permit, Jack Crevalle, Bonefish, and Tarpon. Local anglers recommend using light tackle to get the most out of your battle with these creatures, and casting a line on the fly is also an option for angling enthusiasts.
 
You’ll find a whole variety of trips on offer in Tulum, from 4-hour family-friendly adventures to 9-hour offshore extravaganzas. Although it’s possible to reach productive inshore, nearshore, or offshore fishing grounds on a shorter trip, most captains recommend opting for a full day to get the most out of your adventure.

Rules & Regulations

January

Welcome the new year in with some adventure! January in Tulum is a great time for bottom fishing. You can expect to catch various Snapper and Grouper species, as well as Amberjack, Barracuda, and Kingfish.

February

Things are always hot in Tulum, even during February, and the fishing is a great example! Book a bottom fishing trip and go after some delicious Snapper and Grouper, or troll for Kingfish, Wahoo, and Barracuda.

March

Say goodbye to winter and hello to spring! March marks the beginning of the Sailfish migration in Riviera Maya. Hop on an offshore charter and get ready to put up a fight against one of the most acrobatic fish in the sea.

April

More and more Billfish start to roll in through town. White and Blue Marlin join the fight, so now is the time to whip out the heavy tackle and try and get that Billfish Grand Slam!

May

The spring feeding frenzy continues and it feels like everything is biting. Inshore fishing is hot, with Permit, Snook, and Bonefish. Offshore fishing is sizzling as well, with Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, Kingfish, Bonito, and Wahoo.

June

The action is hot everywhere – inshore, nearshore, and offshore! Closer to shore, you’ll target Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, and Jack. Further offshore, you’ll find yourself battling Marlin, Sailfish, and Dorado.

July

July is a great time to hit Ascension Bay for a nice day of fly fishing. Hit the flats and target Permit, Snook, and Bonefish and enjoy the calm, sheltered waters of the bay.

August

Billfishing starts to slow down but other offshore species are still biting, such as Mahi Mahi. Go offshore and troll for Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna or bottom fish for delicious Snapper. Your options are endless!

September

You can deep drop for Yellowfin Tuna far off the coast or troll for Albacore and Bonito. Bottom fishing in September is solid, with likely catches of Red Snapper and Black Grouper.

October

October is great for inshore fishing as well as reef fishing. You’ll be able to target Triggerfish, Black Grouper, Cubera Snapper, and more.

November

November can get pretty crowded on the Riviera Maya, so book your charter ahead of time. It also marks the arrival of Dia de los Muertos celebrations. This is definitely an exciting month to visit!

December

December is one of the driest months on the Yucatan Peninsula, which makes it one of the most popular times to visit. Plan your trip in advance and check out some of the local charters. You won’t be disappointed!

Its trolling. My girlfriend thought we would be casting. Also, if you've never been on a boat, bring your sea sickness stuff.

Was a great day overall! Definitely worth the money. We caught fish, swam with turtles and saw some ancient ruins. Staff was so friendly. We went a little longer than expected so it cost a little more than our original agreement. Also definitely make sure to enjoy your catch, they cook it afterward at El Capitan and it’s so delicious! Thank you!

We caught three nice fish and hooked two others that got away. The crew was great and we stopped at the reef for some snorkeling at the end which was really quite cool and something to consider if you feel you've been out fishing long enough.

We had a great time with Fernally and Gabriel. We caught two nice Mahi Mahi and a tuna. Jumping off the boat and snorkeling with stingrays and sea turtles was also a highlight! Getting our catches cooked up for us at the local nearby restaurant was our favorite! So delicious. Thank you!

Even though fishing luck was not on our side, we saw dolphins (spotted by captain Angelo) right by the boat, did a lot of snorkeling and even fed pelicans with leftover bait! We had lots of fun and were completely exhausted at the end of the trip. Looking forward to more lucky fishing next time!

The crew was very capable of handling the boat in choppy water. They worked hard to keep the lines clear. We caught a nice Mahi Mahi.

This was the best trip fishing we’ve ever had and it was only a half day! We trolled up the coast of tulum ruins in beautiful water and caught 4 fish. 2 huge barracuda and 2 good size amber jack. Then they let us swim with sea turtles on a reef while preparing ceviche for us from one of the amber jack we caught. Went back to the beach to eat the food and have drinks by a little bar on the beach. Perfect day would do again if we ever return!

Best day! Look no further for your Tulum fishing trip. Charly is great and made the day. It can be hard choosing a guide beforehand, but we can’t imagine having gone elsewhere. 10/10 recommend.

Great fishing. Once a fish bites you get to do the work. Experienced this adventure with our kids 8 and 11. Life wests was provided. Sometimes a lot of waves, perhaps better in the morning with calmer sea. Great bonus was they could help cock the catch at the associated restaurant.

This trip was exactly what I expected. You go fishing with a great captain and mate. In a fishing boat, not some fancy tower boat toting 100k worth of electronics. This whole trip for us was a journey and a great experience. We caught fish, laughed, and enjoyed our time on the water.

Captain Charly and his crew are great! Although the waves were very big when we went out and wanted to go back in after 2 hours, they made us feel safe. They definitely know what they are doing out there. We caught a barracuda and they offered to cook it for us back at El Captain's restaurant. Good experience, just try going on a calm day!
